The Tape Review Show – Research Laboratories

Listener beware. You will be hypnotised. It will happen at a certain point in Adrian’s story about his projectors. Frog cops, moustaches, world war 1 battle ships, a passing angel. That’s the point where you need to take care. Listen in full and you will travel to the past. It happened to us. The radio studio became a space ship with Adrian as the pilot and me (= Rinus) as the navigator. Agatha Christie came to visit us. We heard stories about Elvis. We bumped and leaped though different layers…

Radio On Neanderthal Love

This was supposed to be a Tape Review Show, and actually one or two tapes were played, but the show turned into a giant rant, mainly by Rinus against self-righteous behaviour on social media. So we hear stories about Romenian refugees, found tapes, Freddy and Elton, Dune, mules, neanderthal love, phobians, Bauhaus and the quest for fire.   Tapes played were released by Tanzprocesz, Falt Records and Plaza Zachodnia   You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released by you or your label?

June Crawford interview and live sets

June Crawford makes radio shows for Radio On. With regular intervals he sends his audio reports from his home base Montreal. In the last days of the Summer of 2018 he was on a visit to Berlin. He worked on his opera ‘Gun’ in an artist residency. Adrian Shephard, joined by Rinus Van Alebeek, received June in the Radio On studio. June brought some little sound makers and uses Adrian’s old electric guitar for some short sonic interventions. A lot of time was spent on talking. It starts with a…

Radio On Beuys

On the dustiest shelf of the Radio On archives there are even recordings from shows that probably no-one heard. They are from the pre-history of our radio when Shephard and Van Alebeek first met somewhere in the hinterlands of East Berlin. Back then they still played music, but luckily after hardly one minute the tracks get interrupted by their stream of unconscious talking. Musicologist discussions, ponderings on heroin and an old evergreen determine the first half of the show. At the center there is a long series of questions about…

Radio On Parachutes

This show comes from the deep archives of Radio On. It dates back from the time that we were a nomadic radio station. You will hear mention of cannibal caniche, a web radio based in Paris that hosted us on a couple of occasions. You will here a vintage Shephard/Van Alebeek talking about parachutes, hair, flowers, seeds, punk, the future, and, and, and. The talks, dialogues, lectures melt into short stories, become radiophonic pieces and go back to ordinary topics again. You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released…

Radio On – Getting to Sleep

This show comes from the deep archive of Radio On. It is part of an attempt to produce a 24hour radio show. Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek play poptunes, discuss 1980s, executions, how to die, the guillotine, but then, all of sudden the narrative drifts off. Sleep! A surprise phone call marks the end. You want to submit your works or tapes/CDs/Vinyls released by you or your label? Learn how to submit. * Please check the Schedule for broadcast hours/days

Radio On – Never Ending Radio

This show is by Radio On’s founding fathers Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek. It surfaced from our deep archives only recently. The show was recorded a very long time ago. Adrian and Rinus were on a mission. They did not have any other choice. A snowstorm had hit Berlin. Snow fell down for weeks on end. Big masses of snow blocked the door and the windows. They didnot have a possibility to leave the house. So they started a never ending radio show to kill the time. They discover…
